This workshop brings together researchers dealing with crowd sourcing of audiovisual information to share ideas on the concept as a whole or on its various components: acquisition, transmission, processing, visualization and information sharing. Participants will explore new ideas and ways to collaborate.
ERC grantee Professor Deniz Kirik's spin-off company will join forces with Skåne Regional Council in southern Sweden to build a specialised hospital and a state-of-the-art gene therapy centre, the parties announced on 8 October. The new facilities are expected to be operational by 2020. They will provide researchers unique opportunities for clinical trials, while patients will gain access to the latest treatment methods for Parkinson’s disease and other illnesses.
Short-lived pollutants such as ozone, methane and aerosols are key to fighting both climate change and air pollution, says the team behind an EU-funded study that assessed effective emission abatement strategies for these short-lived climate forcers. Such strategies could reduce increases in global temperatures by 0.22°C by 2050, the team believes.
Plant breeders could in the future produce new versions of common crops to cope with climate change. An EU-funded project is using genetics to identify which plants in staple cereal species could thrive in drought and high temperatures, helping future-proof our food.
Our fragile marine ecosystems are under threat. Sustainable use of resources is key to redressing the balance. Enter a network of EU-funding research agencies who have already offered a glimpse of the future of fisheries and aquaculture research.
Information Day on the contractual Public-Private Partnerships on Factories of the Future, Energy-efficient Buildings, Green Vehicles and Sustainable Process Industry Overview of ongoing activities – presentation of the 2016 - 2017 calls – brokerage and networking
Producing more food to feed a growing global population will require more intensive and extensive farming over the coming decades. Ensuring this can be achieved in a sustainable way is the goal of EU-funded researchers developing methods and tools to monitor and map agricultural areas and crop production.
